WASHINGTON D.C. — President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, reportedly paid a former porn star $130,000 in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump, according to a report by The Hill.

The payment part of a nondisclosure agreement allegedly was made to Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, one month before the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Cohen was an attorney for the Trump Organization at the time.

Clifford privately revealed to sources who spoke to The Wall Street Journal that she had a sexual encounter with Trump at Lake Tahoe in 2006, the year after he and Melania Trump were married.

Cohen said Trump "once again vehemently denies" that the encounter took place, but declined to comment on the alleged $130,000 payment, according to a statement provided to The Journal.

"This is the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client," Cohen said. "You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011."

Shortly before the election, The Journal reported that Clifford intended to appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" to talk about the alleged encounter with Trump but she ultimately decided not to appear on the show without providing an explanation.

Cohen paid Clifford the alleged hush money around the time that the "Access Hollywood" tape, in which Trump made a vulgar comment about grabbing women "by the p ---y," was made public.
